In 2020, our lives were forever changed by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. It impacted a lot of peoples plans to migrate and start a new life in Canada. Unfortunately, the virus didn’t pack up and leave our planet at the stroke of midnight on December 31st, and so we proceed into 2021 with caution, but purpose.
We have adjusted the way we conduct business and live our lives, and as the year opens, the intent shown by the Immigration, Refugee Council Canada (IRCC) to grant permanent residence to more immigrants than ever before this year, makes 2021 the year to immigrate to Canada.
After accepting 341,000 immigrants in 2019, the target set for 2021 by the IRCC is an awesome 401,000 invitations to apply (ITA) for permanent residency. While many are still skeptical due to the fluid nature of the CoronaVirus and the impact it is still having on global travel, it is important to note that vaccines are already being rolled out in Canada which will make Canadian immigration an achievable goal again.
